DESCRIPTION

Integrating Early Learning Centres within new & existing Commercial Office Buildings.

BVN are working with Guardian to create three new childcare centres within existing commercial buildings. The first of these centres to be completed is at 639 Wickham Street.

The centre uses the idea of ‘City as a Project and the Project as a City’ as its strategic framework to support the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of children in an urban context.

Guardian Early Learning Centres follow the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy. We have collaborated with the Centre to meld pedagogical strategy with design to a comfortable and stimulating environment for the children to learn through experience.

SUMMARY

The design approach enables and supports environments of rich & diverse character with the flexibility to be continually adapted as the learning practices evolve

A hierarchy of ‘streets’ and ‘lanes’, ‘public’ and ‘private’ spaces, uniting the centre through a legible circulation system where incidental as well as planned interactions occur

Design fosters connectivity to Brisbane city’s context including historic buildings of varying shapes & forms, rivers & bridges & parks & recreational areas.
